Fedora Core Lunapark reviews Fedora Core 5, and concludes: "I would only recommend FC5 to people who do not own Nvidia video cards or do not mind tweaking a lot default settings to get things working. Otherwise stay with what you are using and wait for SUSE 10.1 or Ubuntu's Dapper. But if you do stick with FC 5 and get past the quirks, it is quite impressive and I am already eagerly awaiting FC 6."

Fedora can do essentially the same thing.. I have gone from Core 2 -> Core 3 -> Core 4 using essentially this process:

1.) rpm -U fedora-release
2.) yum update kernel
3.) reboot
4.) yum -y upgrade

You don't even need to do so many steps since YUM installs a new kernel(if you have not disabled this yourself).

1.) rpm -Uvh fedora-release
2.) yum upgrade

I updated to the stable release from the test versions using this method. Thats how I upgrade CentOS as well. When I used Mandriva as my main distro I use to upgrade with urpmi instead of using discs.
